About LMB & HUB Fest
The League of Michigan Bicyclists is a membership based 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1981. LMB’s mission is to promote bicycling and the safety of bicyclists on Michigan roadways.

Our world-class LMB Tours are the primary funding source to support our advocacy work to make Michigan a more bicycle-friendly state. For 31 years, LMB Tours have hosted thousands of cyclists from across the state and around the globe. Our events are not races but non-competitive, fully supported tours that highlight Michigan’s spectacular scenery and charming communities. LMB Tours attract a wide variety of cyclists because of the diversity of each of our annual events.

In 2017, LMB will introduce our newest event, Hadrian's Ultimate Bicycle Fest, or HUB Fest! Cyclists will choose their own adventure from four fun-filled routes highlighting historic Adrian and Lenawee County.  This one-day event hosted "off the beaten path" will truly offer something for bicyclists of all ages and abilities. With four unique options, HUB Fest is sure to attract a broad range of riders, from beginners to experts, mountain bikers to road cyclists, families, and even wine connoisseurs. Afterwards, the fun continues as riders converge on downtown Adrian for a lively after-party.

In addition to funding LMB's mission, proceeds from the LMB Tours also help to support local bicycle projects. A portion of the proceeds from HUB Fest will be dedicated to funding cycling initiatives in Adrian.
